VP Cheney Plans To Detail Support Of Harriet Miers On Rush Limbaugh Radio 1 PM ET/10 AM PT..."
WOW! Just heard El Rushbo say he is VERY disappointed that W picked Miers because it makes him look weak! I bet you deep inside Rush is hopping mad! WOW! I thought Rush was going to KUDO W on Miers...now I'm sort of nervous after all the praise I gave W on Miers! WHO do I trust more at this point? Hard to pick, but if I had to pick now it would be RUSH! ACLJ has endorsed Miers though...ugh, this is confusing!
Bush NEEDS a fight right now. The reason his poll ratings are down is because conservatives are disenchanted with his spending, his failure to control the borders, and his pandering to the race hustlers after Katrina. Bush needs a clear right vs. left fight...a vicious, bloody fight....to rally the base for 2006.
Some people just don't get it. It's the Democrats who are desperate to avoid a Supreme Court fight. The reason they threatened Bush so much on this issue was to intimidate him into not sending up a nominee who would trigger a fight. The 'Rats knew that a fight would result in the public rallying around the nominee, who would then be confirmed, with Bush's ratings going up and the GOP base rallied for 2006. The last thing the 'Rats wanted was a situation where Ralph Neas & NARAL & Co. were demanding that they filibuster while phone calls & e-mails from back home were running four-to-one in favor of the nominee. Imagine Mary Landrieu or Max Baucus or Bill Nelson caught in that trap.
Bush avoided a fight and gave us a stealth nominee who is a decade too old, thus providing the Democrats with political cover.
Here's the after dinner photo.
My own response is the same as your's and Rush's....after all this time of waiting and now we have not one but two stealth candidates?
but like Rush....I don't know anything about her
It is a proven fact that it is better to energize your base than try to appeal to people who are not going to vote for you anyway.
Who are they?
Why are you on this thread if you don't like Rush? What's your motive?
That's right. We can't think for ourselves. Let's wait until Rush gives us the talking points -- the reasons why we're supposed to applaud the nomination of a woman who donated to Al Gore. I can't wait till Rush comes on and tells me what to think and say.
Pinging before reading!!
Sure he's allowed. He's allowed to lose listeners because of it.
You are a fool.
If you refuse to even listen to the show, and it's obvious you have NOT, get off the thread.
Amen to that. Not that poll numbers are the be-all and end-all, but recall that Clinton's poll numbers jumped when he was fighting the "Right Wing Conspiracy" and impeachment.
>> Rush has been turned off my radio once again.
When he's positive, he's good.
When he started off by saving that it's hard not to be "pulled" to the criticism of this nominee.....that was all I needed to hear.
I actually had a little hope that Rush wasn't so influenced by others, but I was wrong. <<
Jus' keep drinking that good ol' Bush Kool-Aid, brother. Nothing Bush does is wrong. A man who can't express a simple thought or use a complex sentence without stepping on his pecker is actually the prefectest, bestest President of all time!
Rush needs to get behind President Bush on this. United we stand, divided we fall. The RATS and MSM already are claiming the GOP is in disarray over Rove, Delay, Katrina, etc. The best way to prove them wrong is to stand with our President over his nominee.
I agree with you. Evidently the WH thinks it is to appease the media and the Dems. Oh well.
On the other hand, Fred Barnes has a pretty good piece suggesting that we need to wait and see from the hearings before we pass judgement.
Frankly, I'm not too thrilled with the "cronyism" either.
my questions to Cheney:
1- why give a lifetime appointment to a 60 year-old?
2- is she truly our best and brightest?
3- what message does this send to the many brilliant appellate court judges that were passed over?
4- why didn't you save this "throw away" appointment for when John Paul Stevens retires?
American Center for Law and Justice.
They should make a show about Dick Cheney being president.
In 2008, of course. ^^
